Ariel Winter sticks up for Kim Kardashian again for "promoting body positivity"
Two weeks ago, the Internet pretty much stopped after Kim Kardashian posted a nude selfie on Twitter. Immediately, a few other celebs offered criticism, including Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz. But Kim also had many supporters, including Modern Family actress and body positivity advocate Ariel Winter (to whom Kim sent thank you flowers last week). On Wednesday, Ariel made her support clear once again, telling a radio show that Kim is promoting body positivity.
As Eonline reports, Ariel explained on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O:
In her support earlier this month, Ariel highlighted the double standard of critiquing Kim, as a woman, pointing out that “no one was body shaming [Justin Bieber] when he posted his nude guitar photo.”
Ariel stuck by this point again on Wednesday, explaining why she is still standing up for Kim:
Her message to Kim’s haters? If you don’t like it, then just don’t look.
“If somebody doesn’t like the post, they can unfollow them,” she said. “There’s no reason to go on and publicly bash them and I think, you know, she’s promoting positivity instead of being a bad role model.”
You rock, Ariel, and thanks for promoting body positivity time and time again.
